For I See

Can you pray to me and speak honestly
That in your heart you truly love me?
When you say you hate your brother or sister
I cannot see how this could be

Can you tell me you love me
When in your heart I alone do see
The hatred you hold for others
With such a fragrant animosity

For I created you both in my image
Hoping one day you might believe
Each time when you look at him or her
It is my image your eyes really see

Look long and deep into the looking glass
Through which only your eyes can see
And see the dark sinfulness in your heart
That is so very far away from me

Glance at the lies, the hatred, and evil
Which by your own doing your heart breeds
Then tell me as you view your sinfulness
That your heart is full of love for me

"For I See"
